[ yelling ] [bleep] [ yelling ] >> eric: so why so much anger? why the threat? the answer is simply this. the collective bargaining experiment in america is over. the unions are finished. whopping 20% of the workforce in michigan is one of the most unionized states in america. it's no coincidence that michigan is also the 46th worst state in unemployment. the unions know what is happening. they sense their demise. it's imminent. they're fighting to the bitter end. it won't matter. gor snider is doing what's best for the state? michi
: good evening, everybody. i'm lou dobbs. you're looking at union members and supporters of organized labor who gathered today at the state capitol in lansing, mich. demonstrating against the passage of this historic workers' rights legislation, legislation that, tonight, is law. you would not know it watching the boisterous union protests, but unions are left intact by this new law. as is, the right to collective bargaining. the big victory for worker rights today, the elimination of the power of both public and private unions to demand and a worse dues from workers and the end of union power to force workers to pay what have been mandatory dues. michigan becomes the 24th state to enact right to work laws after legislation passed the state house of representatives and was sent on to governor rick snyder for his signature. protesters of this new law number some 10,000 at today's demonstrations. most league made up of uaw union of the workers, machinists, teachers, sometimes angry crowds that seem to be taking cues from their democratic leaders. one group described by those on the grou
he is again marching that day. he became a union organizer in michigan in the sometimes difficult and sometimes violent strikes of 1936 and '37. at the time workers in the big auto plants were coming home sick and injured and exhausted. and no matter how long or how hard they worked, they were coming home broke too. the auto companies didn't want unions, but the workers struck and they struck hard, and the workers eventually won. on february 11th, 1937, gm signed its first contract with the uaw, the united auto workers. if you called this contract the beginning of the american middle class and michigan the birthplace of the american labor union, and walter ruther the father of all that, you probably wouldn't be much overstating your case. mr. reuther was born in west virginia. he learned tool and dye making in a union family. he moved to michigan and found a job in the automobile industry. he found his life's work in helping its workers. he said, quote, there is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men there is no greater contribution than to help the week there is no grea

memphis. back was broken by a bunch of thug cops who hated unions. now, all i want to say to those guys there are a lot of you out there who have done remarkable work for the workers in the country. do not take what you heard here. it's not people who understand all your history. there is no reason to have to. >> greg: you can bring that up to negate any criticism of the union to commit violence against innocent people. well done. >> eric: we have to go. that is if it for "the five." thank you for watching. >> dana: on that note. >> greg: unbelievable. >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. this is a fox news alert. tonight, michigan, the home of the american automobile industry, state that has been dominated by big labor unions, is now a right to work state. michigan's republican governor has just signed a bill in to law ending union ability to force workers to pay dues. february they are not in the union. democrats are predicting a warning of blood in the streets. here is what the governor said moments ago about why he supported the legislation. >> for two strong reasons. first o
supporters protested two right to work bills in the state long known for its proud union history. the bills would mean workers would not have to join a union or be forced to pay dues, and those bills are headed to the governor's desk right now. republican governor rick snyder had in the past said right to work was a divisive issue but plans on signing the legislation into law making michigan the 24th right to work state. we've got guests on both side of this fight tonight. bob king is president of the united autoworkers. scott hagerstrom is michigan state director for americans for prosperity. let me show you what the governor said earlier today when he was a guest on "andrea mitchell reports." >> the way i viewed it, it's on the table, it's a hot issue. let's show some leadership, so i stepped up to say when i review it, i think it's a good thing. it's about being pro-worker, giving freedom of choice to workers. secondly it's about economy development. we will get more and better jobs coming to michigan because we're going to be more competitive. it's important to make a distinction with w

funder of the anti-union rights ambush attack that is going on in michigan right now. with support from conservative outfits like to mackinaw foundation and americans for prosperity, both of which are funded by the be afraid to vote billboards guy, michigan republicans have turned on a dime since they lost seats in this last election. they are moving now at lightning speed to strip union rights in the state of michigan, unilaterally, immediately, irreversebly, and without any meaningful chance for debate. it is the biggest political news in the country. on the anti-union side of the surprise attack, you will find the right wing institutes in the midwest and in the upper plains with funding from the voting is scary foundation. on the other side, fighting to defend union rights, you'll find, naturally, unions, which of course will be essentially gotten rid of with this legislation that the republicans and their conservative donors are pushing through. think about that. it's kind of a striking thing here. the raw political side of this. the nation magazine looked into who the supporters we

the rights of unions. in fact, it was exactly that kind of scene michigan governor rick snyder, a republican, had said he wanted to avoid. in february, governor snyder looked at those other midwestern states with republican governors and workers protesting in the state capital and decided he did not want that thing in michigan, not in his historically very strong union state. governor snyder said, "you look at now that they've had those things happen, do they have a productive environment to solve problems? not necessarily. they're still overcoming the divisiveness, the hard feelings from all of that." at the time reporters wanted to know whether rick snyder would support what is known as a right to work law. the idea of right to work is simple. under a right to work law, employees of a union shop don't have to pay union dues. the employees get the benefit of the union, the higher wages and better health care, all of that, but they do not have to pay for it. why pay money if you can have something for free? for unions, the results of this are close to catastrophic which is why republicans an
today. he tells me the north american unions will unite and fight this tooth and nail with every legislative means at their fingertips. teachers joined the protest in lansing today forcing two michigan offices to close. governor schneider is still blaming labour for focusing -- for forcing him into this position by pushing a proposal ii last summer. >> i believe into collective bargaining, but this is way over the top. the voters spoke in november and voted down proposals to, but this right to work just continued. it was becoming very divisive. it is on the table, a hot issue. let's show some leadership. i stepped up to say that i think it's a good thing. it's about being pro worker. >> the real story is how this all happened, and if all goes back to the koch brothers. americans for prosperity, the right-wing organization founded by the koch brothers, is one of the big money interests. a sister organization also funded by the coat brothers. they write dozens of proposed legislation for states across the country. michigan to be proposed right to work bills mirror alex lang which p

-to-work state. thousands of protesters and union members converged on the capitol in lansing yesterday to object to the measure that would bar unions from requiring workers to pay membership dues and to join the union. governor snyder signed the measure into law. >> shouldn't the unionsing putting out a proposition that workers want to join a union? and shouldn't workers feel free to make that choice to say their dollars are going to the union or not based on they feel they're getting results? so that's what this is really doing. so that's why i view this as pro-worker, not anti-union. >> the right-to-work clause regarded as a big blow to organized labor which has seen membership decline across the country. down to private sector 7%. >> you think overall, isn't it, 7%? more than 50% of those work for the government. >> 7% and more than that if you go up, like -- i think it's 16% if you include -- 13 if you include public, which is -- where it is. a contentious issue. they point to what happened in indiana. you know, more jobs, better -- better economy -- >> i think the -- >> the right-to-work st
on conservative causes with a particular focus on anti-union measures in the states. labor unions played a big part in mr. adelson's conversion to democrat to republican kingmaker. he fought with members picketing outside his hotel in las vegas. he tried to fight them in court, until find the supreme court declined to take his case. in testimony for the nevada state ethics commission, future democratic congresswoman and unsuccessful candidate shelly berkeley said adelson had told her, "old democrats were with the union and he wanted to break the back of the union, subsequently he had to break the back of the democrats." that fight, the war with labor changed sheldon adelson from being just another social liberal on the sidelines of politics to sheldon adelson, contributor on an historic scale to republicans who do not share his social values and this goes to a fundamental truth about the republican party. which is that the republican party in its current incarnatioç is a coalition between missionaries and mercenaries. the republican party is made up of true believers who are really committed
in the heartland of the united states. perhaps no place in america more closely associated with unions than the state of michigan. and today, thousands of union workers descended on the capital to protest a new law they believe could be an ominous signal for unions and worker paychecks everywhere. here's abc's alex perez. >> reporter: the anger boiling over. officers turning to pepper spray to control the crowd at least 10,000 deep. but it wasn't enough. michigan republican lawmakers approving landmark legislation, lifting the requirement that workers in unionized workplaces pay union dues. an army of officers have been guarding the governor's office all day. some of these demonstrators have been here since 5:00 this morning. the republican governor has signed the law. >> with a stroke of a pen, take our rights away. it's offensive. >> reporter: supporters call it right to work, but unions say it's nothing less than an effort to cut their bargaining power. less dues means less influence. the afl-cio says the average worker in right to work states earns $1,500 less than workers in states wit

in michigan as state lawmakers approve right to work law graduation. new laws that prohibit new unions from collecting fees from non-members. mike towbin has more on this. >> they cannot stop what governor rick snyder calls freedom to work legislation from being passed on tuesday because michigan republicans simply have the numbers. the demonstrations have gotten ugly. eight people have been arrested. additional state troopers have been diploid to the capital. unlike drawnout labor standoffs we have seen in years, rick snyder has been able to slam us through the legislature during the lame duck session. he insists he is not picking a fight. >> it is not picking a fight. i view this as solving an issue for michigan workers. >> this does not mean that michigan democrats are about to throw in the towel. they say it is an understatement to claim that this legislation will face legal challenges. they will challenge the manner in which a legislation was pushed through so rapidly. democrats claim republicans in michigan have pulled every trick in the book. >> they have lied to us every step of the
's failures. >> is this the usual stuff that the government unions pay themselves too much, their pensions are too big, their health benefits are too big and therefore they're bankrupting the city? is that the principal cause here? >> that's a major part of it. this is the culture that's been going on for 50, 60 years in detroit. you've got the big unions there that are just taking their cut of it, keep wrachratcheting it more, but you also have a culture of ineptitude in detroit. right now you have kwame kilpatrick on trial for corruption. you have monica conyers, wife of john conyers, the congressman, who is ready to get out of jail in a couple weeks for her corruption charges. this is what detroit is about. ineptitude, corruption, and big union thuggery. maybe that's redundant. >> where is mayor dave bing on this? i thought he was going to be here. i know governor snyder has tried to essentially take over detroit, but i don't think he succeeded. so where is bing on this? >> dave bing has come out and said yeah, people have an entitlement mentality. the workers in the city of detroit, he
support for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. we applaud the citizens of the majority of states which have enshrined in their constitutions the traditional concept of marriage. and we support the campaigns underway in several other states to do so. and take a look at what the republican candidate mitt romney said back in may about his opposition to not only gay marriage, but even civil unions. >> i think people have differing views on marriage. when i served as governor of my state, this issue arose. the same-sex marriage and civil union. i pointed out that i'm in favor and i don't favor civil union or gay marriage. >> you're so far right on this issue, they're not going to do anything about dom aurks. they want to put it in the constitution that you can never have a same-sex marriage. >> it's not going to happen. there's not enough votes in either party. that is a problem. what did happen in that committee, in the general committee on the platform for the first time there was outright vocal, healthy opposition to that language. in fact, th
. this is the pursuit of perfection. >> greta: a california teachers union produces a shocking video. a 60 seconds. ainsley has the headlines. the senate passed a sweeping defense bill but far from a done deal. the $631 billion measure calls for a speedy withdrawal of u.s. forces from afghanistan, tighter sanctions on iran and money for military equipment and personnel. the obama administration has threatened to veto the measure saying it would limit the president a's thoroughly to hane terror suspects. the nypd questioning a man now in connection with yesterday's deadly subway push. police say surveillance video shows a man fitting the suspect's description arguing on the platform. moments later a 58-year-old father who eyewitnesses say tried to break up the fight was pushed in front of an approaching train. police say they nabbed the suspect just around the corner from the subway station. i'm ainsle ainsley earhardt. back to greta. >> greta: how about this? a california teachers' union producing a video cartoon called tax the rich. >> over i'm ric time rich peopld they weren't rich enough so the
: how? a california teachers' union producing a video cartoon called tax the rich. >> over i'm ric time rich peopld they weren't rich enough so they came up with ways to get richer. the first way was with tax cuts. they say why should i care witht other non-rich people. i can hire people to work for me for less money than taxes cost. then i can keep the rest of my taxes for me. meanwhile, instead of investing in things most people would accuse and instead of providing jobs that paid people well like they used to, rich people found they could make more money on wall street. wall street is a place where money makes money. here the 1% made money so fast, they devoted more and more record to it. they took some of that money and sent it far away where workers had no rights to produce things that workers used to produce here. when ordinary people wondered why rich people needed so much money, the 1% said don't worry. this is good for you, too, because it will trickle down from us to you. some day you'll be rich, and then the rules we made for us will be your rules, too. >> okay. now, what was
that the company must enter into a collective bargaining agreement with the labor union. the company is arguing the decision can't be made because the recess appointments are invalid. here is weigh in, lis wiehl, fox news analyst and randy zelen. look at the end of the day this whole thing is argument was the senate in session or was it not. >> were they in kindergarten or on recess. the president may have skirted the law a little bit, like a little bit of sidelining it but did he cross over the line? no. does this happen all the time? yes. yes it does. melissa: randy, what do you say. >> skirted the law like i'm wearing a skirt. he obliterated law. exactly. let's take a step back look at what this whole thing was designed to do. once a upon a time, smart guys, founding father, look you have to make a temporary appointment, senate confirm it we'll not the drag the senate back in. mr. president do what you have to do. it was for the convenes of senate, not to screw the senate which is exactly what the president is doing. >> this is family show. we don't speak in those terms. melissa: was he tryi
create jobs but opponents insist it's about busting the unions. we'll get into that. >>> plus the president and the leader of the house of representatives got together over the weekend to talk about the looming fiscal cliff, just three weeks away. after the it was over, this one didn't belly ache about that one and that one didn't belly ache about this one, so what did they do? how did that go? from the journalists at fox news, this is the monday fox report. ...and this, dancing in their heads... ...we have these. home depot gift cards. give the gift of doing, in-store or online. >> shepard: the white house says president obama believes he can cut a deal with house republicans to keep from all going over the fiscal cliff. the president is refusing to compromise on letting tax cuts expire on incomes of more than $250,000 a year. g.o.p. leaders are calling that a job killer and a deal breaker. of course, if we fall off the fiscal cliff, we'll all die, right? actually, taxes will go up for pretty much everybody and automatic spending cuts kick in on knew year's day. the president
're really talking about giving you the right to work for less money. >> obviously a pro union crowd there. a lot of folks from the uaw there in detroit. but the president continuing the campaign-style effort. seems to be paying political dividends at least for now by rallying public opinion on his side on the fiscal cliff. the republicans, now that the election is over don't have a single figure who can go out to do the same thing. it gives the advantage to the president in terms of the bully pulpit. we'll see how negotiations turn out in the end. >> eamon, thank you very much. as always. despite president obama's objections and protests michigan will become the 24th right to work state. that may happen tomorrow. our next guest has a sample. please stop lecturing others and get your own job done. joining us is chase bolger, michigan speaker of the house. what is president obama doing? he did this in wisconsin and got whooped. is he going to get whooped here? >> good evening, larry. he did come, weighed in and he disagrees with us. that's okay. we disagree with him. >> what's wrong with a
that 25% of republicans want their state to secede from the union. do you believe this number? i am deeply convinced it's mainly in the south. and by the way, another 19% say they aren't so sure about secession. are these people meatheads or what? 44% of the republican party either does or might go along with ses secession. what do you want to bet these are the same people who say president obama is a muslim. just guessing. >>> he's outspoken, tough, irreverent, biting, funny, and very, very smart. he'll be insufferable now. barney frank entered congress at the start of the reagan revolution. he's leaving it as it begins to crumble, some say. the man from massachusetts joins us tonight. >>> finally, consider yourself warned, barack obama is a socialist leading the country to communism. that's the latest from the sage of wasilla, sarah palin. that's what she's still saying. and this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> political campaigns are always competing to figure out the best ways to use social media. as the romney campaign learned, not all publicity is good publicity. yahoo! an
